This is my list of a few of my favorite Thanksgiving Day films. These are the movies that scream Thanksgiving to me, that make me laugh, make me cry, make me grateful. In no particular:
Planes, Trains and Automobiles - John Candy, Steve Martin – What Thanksgiving is really all about.
Jack and Jill – Adam Sandler.
Home for the Holidays - Anne Bancroft, Charles Durning, Holly Hunter, Robert Downey, Jr. This file is one of my absolute favorites. Going home for the Holidays has never been more fun.
Pieces of April – Katie Holmes.
What’s Cooking?– Mercedes Ruehl
The Big Chill – Star studded cast including, Glenn Close, JoBeth Williams, Tom Berenger…
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving – The Peanuts Gang – it’s not a holiday without them.
Holiday Treasure – Jason Robards. This one and The House Without a Christmas Tree, and Mr. Sycamore, I enjoyed these as a teen and watching them with my children when they were little.
Unless the last one is shown on television or I can find it on Netflix, I will not be watching it as I believe its only in VHS form (have to do a bit of research) and I do not have a VHS player.
